The HockeySled Review
Imagine yourself easily blowing by your competition with explosive speed. For most people speed is their biggest obstacle. Now, with the invention of the HockeySled you have an opportunity to overcome this obstacle. This resistance training hockey aid improves your skating stride, strength, and speed.
It is made of thick durable rubber that has grooved edges along the bottom. It fills with water or sand similar to a basketball hoop. It can fill up to a hefty 50 pounds and with stacking ability you can get up to 100 pounds of resistance. When you're skating the thick grooves along the bottom build up snow and add even more resistance.
You can use this product by inserting the blade portion of your stick into the hole in the HockeySled. This will not damage your blade at all and is completely safe. You also have the option of using the pulling pack with it. This allows you to do backward skating or forward skating will puck handling, passing, etc.
When using this product it is important to remember proper forum makes perfect. Be sure to get to a 90 degree bend in your knees or as close as you can. Work on long powerful strides then skate with out the weight to feel the true effect. Your work to rest ratio should be at least 2:1. To truly improve speed make sure you go all out for preferably 5 to 20 seconds. You can try changing directions and doing quick starts and stops to add variety. One thing to remember while using this or any other speed training regimen, only perfect practice makes perfect, and you don't get better if you don't push your limits and get outside of your comfort zone every time. After many repetitions your body gets used to this weight and when you skate in a game, tryout, or practice it is much easier with a noticeable increase in speed and conditioning.
